In my earlier post about our first trip to South Tyrol, I promised to share more about our hotel in Naturno, close to Merano. Well here it is, the 4 great reasons to stay at Spa & Family Resort Sonnenhof.
#1. Location: Perfect base to explore the region
This hotel is the perfect base for many excursions. It’s surrounded by vineyards and apple orchards and the beautiful cities Merano and Bolzano are close by. For families who visit South Tyrol for the first time and wish to have ‘double S’ (Sightseeing and Swimming) as main ingredients for a fantastic vacation, it’s great to start here. It’s very convenient to stay in a hotel with a great in- and outdoor pool area, when travelling with kids.
#2. Pool area: sliding, swimming and sunbathing to the max!
So, let’s talk about the fab water facilities this house has to offer. I’ll be honest with you, the kids had a great part in choosing this hotel. While surfing the web, this one immediately caught their attention. Sliding, swimming and playing in a pirate ship, it’s all there and the full-time lifeguard keeps an eye on things. Reassuring feeling. Gave us the chance to relax on the comfy daybeds, enjoy the garden, do some reading and sunbathing instead of being in the water all the time. The boys were only persuaded to leave the pool for lunch and ice cream. Happy kids, even happier parents
#3. Wellness & Spa facilities. Relax and enjoy the silence in style
I always love to spend time in the Spa & Wellness area. At Sonnenhof they’ve put a lot effort into this. A complete new building packed with designer furniture, white wash oak floors and colors in relaxing grey, chalk and white, recently opened its doors. All done with great taste and eye for detail. No entrance for kids though, therefore the perfect spot for mom and dad to relax and enjoy a bit of silence.
#4. Overall feel good vibe. Eat, sleep & drink in the most pleasant way
A comfy bed, good food, a nice drink and friendly staff, these things can make or break a stay in a hotel. At Sonnenhof it was good, very good. We slept like marmots, gained a few pounds thanks to the tasty dishes at dinner, homemade cakes and desserts. Along the way we had some topnotch bottles of wine. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect stay to you?
